Why Don't You...
... commit to a weekly artist date?
... schedule time alone each week to do something you love? Write it in your calendar. In pen.
... treat yourself to a massage, a pedicure, or a new lipstick?
... set a timer for 10 minutes and list all the things you like to do that don't cost a cent. Schedule one a week for the next few months. Keep these dates with yourself.
... go to a bookstore, gather a pile of magazines, order something at the cafe, and enjoy the next hour.
... go to your local historical museum. You might be surprised at how much you learn. And how much fun you have.
... check your local library for their next free concert and go.
... head to a big playground that's not near your house. Swing and slide and spin until you've forgotten how old you really are. Better yet, till you know it doesn't matter anyway.
... drive to your favorite part of town and go for a long walk.
... visit an art supply shop and spend $10 on the thing that made your eyes light up.
... go to the movies by yourself. On a school night. Buy the big tub of popcorn.
... buy a big box of crayons and a new coloring book or two. Put on some great music and spend an hour coloring. Yes, you. Coloring.
... send the family out so you can stay piled up in bed with a great book and some chocolate covered peanuts.
In case you want more...
